30 Day Challenge - Day One

After completing the Team12WeekChallenge I was so excited by my own journey that I wanted to share this experience with my friends and family. There are very few activities that are not made more exciting than when they are done with a buddy or a group. In my heart, I truly believe that my own personal success in weight loss was fueled by the encouragement and support I received as a member of the 12-week challenge. In addition, accountability is one of the best ways to reach your health goals.

Welcome, the "Fall Back Into Fitness, 30-Day Challenge."
 
You can share your fitness journey on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by using the hashtag #fallbackintofitness.

Reaching Fit to Be Healthy - Breaking Bad Eating Habits

When I started my journey into reaching a healthier lifestyle by becoming fit I had a mountain of poor eating habits that I needed to throw away. There is a lot of advice online about how to break those habits and, I don't know about you, but it can seem like information overload. Here are a few tips that I've learned during my journey that I want to share with you.

Tip #1: First and foremost, it's helpful to remember that when making changes to your diet and exercise program that we are reaching for a lifestyle change not a quick fix.  In other words, make small changes that in the end will add up to a lifestyle of healthy eating and living.

Tip #2: One of the most common, I believe, misconceptions about beginning the journey to healthy eating is to throw away all the junk food in your house. Unless you live alone, I don't advocate this as a great way to start your fitness journey for a number of reasons. I ask, "Why set yourself up for failure?"
